Weekly Blog Review-Goodbye Penny!

This week was “budget week” for Ontarians. The highlight of the “budget week” was that the federal government will finally stop producing the penny.  Although you will be able to use the penny for as long as you want to, The Royal Canadian Mint will stop producing them this fall. I am sure you have read enough about the budgets this week so I won’t get into it :).

    I think a lot of the budget is being overshadowed by the ‘newsiness’ of the penny axing, but it’s definitely an interesting development!
